Tensions flare as scientists go public with plan to build synthetic human DNA

 

It starts here.One of the greatest ethical debates in science – manipulating the fundamental building blocks of life – is set to heat up once more.According to scientists behind an ambitious and controversial plan to write the human genome from the ground up, synthesising DNA and incorporating it into mammalian and even human cells could be as little as four to five years away.Nearly 200 leading researchers in genetics and bioengineering are expected to attend a meeting in New York City next week, to …

One step closer to finding out how wine may protect your neurons

 

Let it be no misunderstanding: heavy alcohol intake has severe harmful effects. But already for several years, researchers have been finding that moderate wine intake can be beneficial in delaying the onset of cognitive impairments in aging and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Esteban-Fernández from the Institute of Food Science Research in Madrid and her colleagues have been investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying the neuroprotective actions …

Scientists have developed the world’s first soft tissue synthetic retina

Researchers have created the world’s first artificial retina using soft synthetic tissue, which they say could be used to develop a new generation of less-invasive bionic eye implants in the future.

Made from a combination of water-based hydrogel droplets and light-sensitive proteins, the synthetic retina is designed to mimic the functionality of its biological counterpart while existing in harmony with the tissue that makes up the rest of the inner eye.

"The human eye is incredibly sensitive, which is why foreign bodies like metal retinal implants can be so damaging, leading to inflammation and/or scarring," says chemical biologist Vanessa Restrepo-Schild from the University of Oxford in the UK.

"But a biological synthetic implant is soft and water based, so much more friendly to the eye environment."

10 important questions raised by Sally Yates’s testimony on the ‘compromised’ Michael Flynn

BY JAMES HOHMANN

with Breanne Deppisch

 

 

THE BIG IDEA: Sally Yates’s riveting testimony Monday raised far more questions than it answered. Most of all, it cast fresh doubts on Donald Trump’s judgment.

The former acting attorney general  disclosed that, 18 days before Michael Flynn resigned, she unambiguously warned White House Counsel Donald McGahn that the national security adviser was “compromised by the Russians” and “could be blackmailed.”
